Greetings TTUHSC Community,


I hope you enjoyed the holiday weekend — and made sure you celebrated with the health and safety of all in mind.

Some of our teams will return limited operations to campus this week, so I want you to know the extra steps we have taken to ensure your safety and well-being. Harry Slife, Ph.D., will join today’s Town Hall to share how his team has prepared for our return.

3 p.m. Tuesday, May 26
Join the meeting:

Dr. Slife is the vice president of Facilities and Safety Services. He will discuss with Statline co-hosts the steps necessary to maintain the highest standards of health safety we’ve committed to our entire TTUHSC community and our patients. We welcome your questions in advance at or during the event.

As I mentioned in an email sent last week, the facilities and safety services team have done a phenomenal job deep-cleaning our campuses as we’ve worked remotely. I am eager to open our campuses, but it will take a committed ONE TEAM effort. I know you can be counted on to do your part.

Warmest regards,


Lori Rice-Spearman
